MIAMI – The Florida Lottery’s $2 million 50X Cashword scratch-off game has just eight top prizes, and a Miami man just claimed one of them.
Jorge De La Vega, 54, hit it big on the $10 scratcher and decided to take his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1.76 million, lottery officials said Thursday.
De La Vega bought the lucky ticket from Supertony Oil Inc. at 13701 Southwest 42nd Street, which gets a $4,000 bonus commission for selling the winner.
The $2 million 50X Cashword launched in December, and Florida Lottery says it features over $229 million in cash prizes, including those eight top prizes worth $2 million.
